Poor food and poor atmosphere! I've been to Greece over 10 times and I don't no how they can get the food so wrong! Not authentic not Greek! Don't bother u could probably do better at home from cheap produce.....

My husband and I come here very often and we always enjoy fish and vegetarian dishes. They are delicious! Kostas and the rest of the staff are always friendly and helpful. The environment is cosy and pleasant. 5 stars! Sarah and Luke

I've been to this restaurant twice, with friends, and both times it was a great experience. We had the chicken souvlaki each time and enjoyed it very much. Jurgita, the waitress, was extremely friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable so I would highly recommend...More

If this is an example of Greek cuisine then I am sorry for this culture. I was served chicken nuggets that had obviously been cooked hours before they were put on my plate. The pieces of rock hard chicken was served with a sliced tomato...More

Description
Our restaurant is open since 2009. Recently it was taken under a new management and the new owner, Kostas, is a Greek who wants to share his love for the food and invite you to experience a taste of Greece.

Now, our restaurant is refurbished and the menu has been improved to its best. We serve homemade and fresh food and most of the products are coming directly from Greece such as olive oil, Kalamata olives, honey, oregano, pita bread, wines and much more!

Everyone is welcome to experience Greek style dining with us, which is based on sharing mezethes (a small sharing dish, bigger than started but smaller than main course). We serve different kinds of mezethes such as vegetarian, meat and sea food. Also, we serve some traditional and people’s loved main courses such as Souvlaki, Gyros and Moussaka.

Our aim is to spread our love of Greek food and introduce you to great flavours.

Welcome to our little corner of Greece in Edinburgh!
